From Sweden to India, matchbox design has ranged from minimalist to ornate. In this workshop, we will find inspiration from Mexican matchbox art to artist books, and explore what kind of tiny masterpieces we can create with UMOCA’s first Educator-In-Residence, Céline Downen. This workshop is free and all materials will be provided. RSVP is preferred, so please contact Elly Baldwin by email at elly.baldwin@utahmoca.org or by phone at 801-328-4201×124.
